Working with other NGOs and organizations, our goals are to integrate legally-enforceable and science-based environmental protection and advancement into the CAP and its subsidies. The Lawyer will interface with EU institutions and the European Parliament, build and maintain networks with key partners, and represent our work to external audiences.
